was only 5. my people were revolutionary refugees. they had to be fed by the united states government and housed by the united states government. i know what poverty is. i've been up through it. >> jennifer: george romney, a republican through and through who was not, like his son trapped in the bubble of wealth and privilege and who freely admits his family was helped by the u.s. government's social programs in their time of need. now many modern-day republicans are running away from romney's statement today. people like connecticut republican senate candidate linda mcmahon who said today "i disagree with governor romney's insinuation that 47% of americans believe they're victims who must depend on the government for their care." mcmahon may not want to suffer the political backlash. but she like many other republicans and fox news commentators, she has used the 47% line before. here she is earlier in this very campaign. >> i would like to see everyone pay their fair share. 47% of the people today don't pay
